Executive Vice President
Chief Financial Officer
What does a good day at work look like to you?
I complete what I set out to accomplish for the day. And if I’m so fortunate, after leaving work, sneaking off to the golf course and getting nine holes of golf in would cap it off very nicely.
What do you like best about the culture at Kennebunk Savings?
It’s a culture of caring. Everyone here is very supportive of one another. It’s an organization that does value its employees, and we do as much as we can to support their development. It’s a good place to work.
What’s an important lesson you’ve learned in your career?
There are many different ways to achieve the results you’re looking for. It’s not one-size-fits-all.
What living person do you most admire?
I would pick Warren Buffet. For his accomplishments in business, for such a prolonged period of time, for his ability to get people interested in investing and not being afraid of it. He’s also given away a ton of money to good causes.
What words or phrases do you most overuse?
That’s going to leave a mark.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Prior to coming to Kennebunk Savings, I was the CFO at another financial institution. I joined that bank in 2009 in the midst of the financial decimation that was occurring. And I think that organization was in denial about what was happening. If things had gone a different way, they could have gone over. When I came in, I started working with a great group, and we really identified the issues, made some tough decisions, and turned it all around. And by 2011 we were humming.
What do you love about your community?
I was born in Biddeford and I live in Saco now – my children all went to Thornton. I’m very active in the community. It’s a very good and very safe community. I know a lot of people here, it’s familiar. It’s home.
